I use a small antenna to get a signal for over-the-air TV stations. Often, the lips of the person speaking aren't in synch with the audio. It happens very often on the FOX station, but happens occasionally on the others too. If I turn the TV off and back on it stays in synch for half an hour, then drops out again.

What causes that, and how can I stop it from happening?

Vid/aud out of sync sometimes occurs with sat service because of the 44,600 mile distance [22,300 both ways] the signals travel. It requires a re-set. Never heard of it with OTA antenna signal. If your local Fox station doesn't have a problem with local news but out of sync with their programming, it may be their problem. Contact your local FOX station, email engineering dept. and state your problem.

The distance has nothing to do with it. The sound is digitized and is part of the transmission, which ALL travels at the speed of light. There can be issues, but distance is not the cause.
